New Grass - Dirty Projectors: The Socialites (AlunaGeorge Remix)
Worlds colliding: our favorite new act from 2012 (AlunaGeorge) flips a track
from our favorite record of last year (Swing Lo, Magellan
) with signature elegant restraint. As recent history has shown, Amber Coffman’s voice lends itself to all sorts of contextual variance
, but seldom has a remixer so effectively framed its unadorned timbre. This delicate interpretation places Coffman firmly in front of a tasteful UK soundscape that rubs elbows with the likes of SBTRKT and Disclosure, while maintaining the glitchy soul vibes that put AlunaGeorge on our radar in the first place.
Spoiler Alert: this will almost certainly end up on our year-end lists.
